    I loved these tires when I had them.
    But...they wear FAST!!!

    And traction is limited with any street tire when you make close to 400RWHP.

    I had these and they just couldn't hook up for me unles I really heated them up, but fortunately for me they barely wore at all. They're really soft. I would go for the Invos or some bfgs or michelins

    Shouldn't have been heating up the MX's....as they will only get slicker as they heat.
    Same goes for any street tire.

    Bark them to clean them off, then go.

    Wear fast huh? IS that at your driving style Mr. L... Ive seen you in the foothills and along the front range and with that driving any set of tires are going to wear FAST!!!

    I have to agree with Mr.Luos, i had those on my 93Z and wear on them were pretty good, the tires to me look a bit bulky, had good traction in the begining but after 4k it started to lose some of the grip it initially had and i think that was to be expected. Great tire and price is really good on them. If i had to do it all over again i would definitly go back to my Nitto's, there are other tires out there that are better with the set up you have your gonna need some good and really sticky tires.

    I had some and never really liked them. Couldn't get them to hook, and didn't like they way they handled in the rain.

    I couldn't get mine to hook very well and they didn't last very long but for the price I almost bought another set. I have 17/35/315 bf drag radials now and love them but they also don't seem like they last long

    I like them but they do wear pretty fast, especially if you like doing burnouts and donuts

    I currently have a set of my Camaro I like them too but mine are directional and cant be rotated except for front to back. Cant switch sides though. But mine are nice and sticky. I would buy them again.
